What's New in Version 1.5.5
Updates for Mac App Store
Improved threading, should fix any hangs and improve CPU utilisation during animation playback
Parameter browser window remembers its size and position
Added confirmation dialog when closing while rendering
Added mirror_x and mirror_y transforms
Added crackle transform by slobo777 (works differently, slower than plugin for large cell sizes, faster for smaller)
Weights and shader randomisation now works with animation, i.e. you can randomise at different times and it will interpolate
Fixed param browser to use current animation time
Iterator weights, shader parameters, camera transform parameters and Apophysis DLL plugin parameters can now be animated
Per-iterator time scaling, to adjust the amount of motion blur over time
World editor shows keyframes and tangents
Faster and more accurate interpolation
Added play button for animation preview at a target FPS
Added new empty world menu item, updated help menu links to tutorials and forum
Added collideoscope transform by Michael Faber
Added no_edge parameter to crop and cropn, to eliminate the "bright dot" from Apophysis limitations
Removed undo depth limit
New flam3_transforms don't contain a linear transform
New worlds no longer inherit previous camera settings

Chaotica is a next-generation fractal art application, designed for both novices and professional artists.
Novice users can enjoy editing randomised fractals to produce stunning HD wallpapers and animations.
Professional users will particularly value the fast, modern rendering engine. High quality animations and huge images for print are easily produced, with real-time imaging controls that will dramatically accelerate your workflow.
What is fractal art?
Fractal art is a digital art medium with a very rich creative space, based on geometry and recursion.
Chaotica's user interface abstracts much of the maths away to provide a fluid artistic process.
Since its invention in 1981, IFS fractals have been popularised by Flam3 and Apophysis. Chaotica extends the creative possibilities of these programs in a powerful, production-oriented environment.
